3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had a private double room with air conditioning and fan and private bathroom for 130real. The fan was quite noisy so it blocked out other noises so I slept well. It is on a busy road close to the airport. It only costs 10 real from/to airport Breakfast is the usual but I had difficulty eating it due to... More

This hostel offers fair accommodations and service, has a nice pool and a great friendly staff. It's located quite close to the airport and not that far from the beach if you don't mind walking a bit. Definitely would recommend it and stay there again.

I am so surprised by the negative comments here & can only think that they have made changes since these comments were made. My friend & I ended up staying 5 days because the staff were just so friendly, caring & helpful.....it really did feel like home. Only one staff member could speak fluent English, but it didn't matter, when... More

No wifi, eaten alive by Mosquitos. Poor service. In a dangerous area. I'm very suspicious of the above positive reviews. This place ruined my time in Recife. I had a horse door which made a huge amount of noise when the endless amount of 'guests' would stroll through my room.

We didn't have a good experience at Arrecifes'. The room was totally sealed, and the air conditioning was not enough to have a pleasant air. Our room had a lot of mold!! Also, they said our 2-person room had private bathroom, but it was actually shared with another 2-person room. To complete the bad experience, the staff in the reception... More

Great hotel great location Such a shame the connecting inlet has been left unused because of Lanzerote government , Could be a great plus for the hotel and Arrecife, lovely lido and gardens. Great staff and food.

I did not know what to expect when I booked a room at Arrecifes, but I know where I'll stay if I ever return to Recife. This hostel was absolutely fantastic. The people are friendly. Everything was perfectly clean. The beach was only a few blocks away and Recife has a beautiful ocean-side walk there. The breakfast was terrific. The... More
